Wrought Iron & Timber Sliding Gates Handcrafted in Scotland

Timber sliding gates are an ideal solution for those wanting to take full advantage of their driveway opening area or who have limited space that is unsuitable for conventional swing gates. Our sliding gates can be custom-made to any opening size (automated or manual). Our automatic sliding gates for driveways are available with tracked and cantilever opening systems.

There is no shortage of design options when it comes to our wood and metal sliding gates. We have a standard range of classic gate designs, but our metal framed sliding gates can also be made bespoke. You have the choice of Western Red Cedar or Iroko timber infill and wrought iron metal frames and the wood can be supplied untreated, stained, oiled, or painted.

Our metalwork is galvanised as standard and we offer optional powder coating to assure the longevity of your new sliding wood and wrought iron gates.

Metal Framed Timber Sliding Gate Features:

Types of Metal Framed Timber Infill Sliding Gates

If you want to upgrade the entrance of your house with a new elegant gate, you can’t go wrong with a wood and wrought iron sliding gate from our range.

Our sliding timber gates with deep metal frames have a long life and are made to measure in different sizes (width & length) and are designed to meet your entrance and security gate needs. We also provide different automation systems for sliding automatic driveway gates.

Manual & Electric Sliding Gates

Manual or electric metal framed sliding wooden gates are especially popular as driveway gates because they add optimal privacy to residential or commercial properties and elevate curbside appeal, which can increase the value of the property.

Tracked Sliding Gates

A tracked sliding timber gate is ideal for level openings. Wheels are discreetly installed within the manual or electric sliding gate’ [“gate’s”] frame and it is then fitted on a ground track system that slides to one side. We provide and install high-quality concrete tracks that provide stability and make the process of opening and closing your manual and electric sliding wooden gates for your driveway easy.

To design and manufacture the perfect gate and track system for you, we either measure the sliding gate width and supply an existing timber gate with a wrought iron frame or create a new one for your property’s entrance, based on your needs and creative input.

Cantilever Sliding Gates

A timber cantilever sliding gate with a metal frame is one of the most reliable and robust entrance gates you can add to your property. Our cantilever gates for driveways can be made with or without automation and are a terrific option as a driveway gate to the entrance of your property, especially if you have limited and uneven ground.

Our cantilever gates have an advanced, invisible roller system that raises the gate above the ground of the opening. Instead of sliding along a track with wheels, it is supported by rollers behind the fencing that remains suspended when opening and closing the gate.

We can install cantilever sliding gates on uneven floors because they have a solid concrete foundation that supports the opening mechanism and gate.

Why Choose Metal Sliding Gates?

At Gates Scotland, we fabricate and supply a huge range of timber sliding gates UK-wide. All our metal framed timber sliding gates are made from only the best materials ensuring the highest standards.

Here are four major benefits you can expect from our timber sliding gates:

1. Elevate Your Property Safety & Security

Our highest priority is your safety and the safety of your property, this is why all our gate systems are designed to put your safety first.

A huge benefit of having automatic sliding driveway gates is the added security you have leaving or returning to your property using a remote control. Manual sliding driveway gates can also be secured. We offer a range of gate closers and locks from Locinox for your new manual sliding driveway gate.

Our automatic system automatically stops the gates if any resistance is detected, this ensures your gate won’t open or close when people are nearby. We have a highly trained and experienced team that ensures all security systems are put in place correctly.

2. High-Quality Materials

Our sliding gate wood materials include Western Red Cedar or African Iroko hardwood, both of which are high-quality timber options for an electric or manual sliding wooden gate for your driveway.

Western Red Cedar and Iroko hardwood gates are highly durable, low maintenance and both are hardwearing, temperature and rot-resistant woods.

Timber gates with a wrought iron metal frame are statement pieces as driveway gates because they offer a premium look that will instantly enhance the curbside appeal of your property.

3. Longevity Guaranteed

The hardwood timber combined with wrought iron materials is extremely durable, so you can expect a sliding gate that is extremely strong and offers maximum protection. Wrought iron is also highly resistant to bending, dents, and general impact damage, which means there’s no need to worry about safety and stability when you have an electric or manual sliding gate from Gates Scotland on your property.

4. Finishes for Ultimate Durability & Protection

The right finish will ensure your manual or electric sliding gates for driveways will last with minimal maintenance.

Here are two finishes we offer:

Hot Dip Galvanisation

All the gates in our timber and metal frame gate range, with or without automation, are finished with galvanisation for added protection as soon as our blacksmiths have completed the metal fabrication phase. Hot dip galvanising ensures optimal strength and that your new sliding metal gates have a rust-free life and can withstand all types of weather conditions.

Powder Coating

For exceptional performance, there is also an option for us to powder coat your driveway gate frame in a RAL colour to match the aesthetic of your property. Powder coating is the longest-lasting, most durable coating you can apply to your new sliding wooden driveway gates, and it is maintenance-free (apart from requiring the occasional cleaning).

Our team of experienced, highly skilled blacksmiths can make bespoke wooden sliding driveway gates according to your specific needs. Request a quote online or call us on 01698 629 039.
